he Netherlands is the second-largest agricultural exporter after the US. The Dutch agricultural sector booked yet another export record in 2017. Exports totaled €92bn last year, making the Netherlands the second-largest agricultural exporter in the world after the US. Please note that the Netherlands is slightly less than twice the size of New Jersey. So what is it that we do in the Netherlands that puts us in this position? Well, technology plays a big role.
The Netherlands has become an agricultural giant by showing what the future of farming could look like. VanderSat proudly builds upon that legacy with our earth observation aimed at agriculture and water management.
